Plymouth - Galway Worsted
Good quality worsted weight yarn. 4 out of 5 stars
Good value and quality for a commercial 100% wool Non-superwash yarn. This has a nice, crisp hand which I have found is good for both knitting and crocheting. Very little, if any, splitting, knots, or frays amongst many skeins afghan and sweater quantities. If used for felting, this takes more effort to felt in a top-loading washer than Cascade 220 or Patons Classic that said, I have been able to wash garments and blankets made with Plymouth Galway Worsted in my top-loader on the wool cycle with absolutely no adverse effects felting, matting, loss of stitch definition. I find it relatively soft and comparable to Cascade 220 in this area, but I am not particularly sensitive to wool. For sweaters made with this yarn, I would suggest wearing some type of garment between the sweater and skin. Plymouth offers a very nice selection of colors in the Galway Worsted and Heathers lines, however from what I have seen online and in stores unfortunately doesn't seem to compare to that of which is offered by Cascade in their 220 line. All in all, a highly recommended yarn, that with proper care, will last many, many years.

Beautiful! 5 out of 5 stars
Knits up, handles and washes well. As I have only ever air dried my hand-knitted items, regardless of the what labeling indicated, I have always experienced wonderfully long lasting results with this yarn. To those who have reported ONE knot per skein: it's industry standard for 3 knots per ball/skein of yarn. Otherwise yarn companies/dyers would be running into a lot of waste. It's also a great reason to rewind all yarn, even those that come in pull skeins.
